    Levels in Down Syndrome?

    Hello, I have a friend who has a child as having Down Syndrome. They have the child catagorized at Level 8. What does that mean, exactly? Impact of the condition? Thank you for any assistance in this matter...

    I haven't heard of "levels" in DS either. I couldn't imagine anyone being able to diagnose what "level" the DS child is until he/she is an adult and really stops learning. Each child learns different things at a differnt pace.

    I have son with DS and I have never heard of that...if she had a test done that measures the back of the neck...maybe it is referring to the thickness or something like that...I would have the doc clarify.

    Talking Re: Levels in Down Syndrome?

    How old is your child? They may be talking about low, moderate or high abilities within an age range. When my DS son was about 12, the teachers said he had learned as much as he ever would. This is rubbish. Don't ever let anyone tell you that because NOone ever stops learning until we are dead!

    There are no levels of down syndrome, its an anomaly of the chromosomes. -however every individual whether with or without genetic discord, has abundance of other genetic and evironmental factors that influence one's abilities to function, learn and thrive in life. Infact DS individuals may possess good intellect, learning and rationalizing characters on par with normal intellect. Expressionism may be of a physical limitation leading normal people to think there is much less going up-stairs.
